Hello again! For the past nine months, Brock Flowers has penned this column. Brock left Douglas County to take a position with the Wisconsin Department of Administration in Madison. While he was with Douglas County, Brock played an instrumental role in implementing the county's performance management system and merit reward program. We wish him the best in his new endeavor.
The county's schedule for next week includes one committee meeting, the County Board of Supervisors monthly meeting and two events on fall prevention.
The Children's Community Options Program Advisory Committee meets at 2 p.m. Wednesday in Room 207C of the Douglas County Courthouse, 1313 Belknap Street, Superior). The Committee will review the Annual Plan of the County's Community Options Program and will receive reports from staff.
The Douglas County Board of Supervisors meets at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Government Center Board Room 201, 1316 N. 14th St., Superior. The Board will consider a resolution in support of the Better City Superior/Exposition District referendum, which will appear ballots in Superior on Nov. 8. The Board also will consider a resolution and ordinance that will allow the County to become a member of the Wisconsin PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Commission. The Commission serves as a conduit between businesses or property owners investing in energy efficient improvements and lenders interested in taking advantage of the added security provided by the PACE program.
